The New Sobriety" is Willett's favoured translation of the German 'Neue Sachlichkeit' - variously translated elsewhere as 'new objectivity', 'new matter-of-factness', or my personal favourite, 'new dispassion' (not because it is more accurate, but because it brings home the paradox of an exalted anti romanticism).

John Willett (24 June 1917 – 20 August 2002) was a British translator and a scholar who is remembered for translating the work of Bertolt Brecht into English.

Willett was born in 1917. As a freelance writer Willett authored two books about the Weimar period. This is the first of the pair, published by the well-known art publisher Thames and Hudson. He attended Winchester public school and then Christ Church, Oxford (the grandest and poshest of all the Oxford colleges). He was just beginning a career in set design when the Second World War came along. He served in British Intelligence. Like most T&H art books it has the advantage of lots of illustrations (216 in this case) and the disadvantage that most of them (in this case, all of them) are in black and white.
